Singer cum politician, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has withdrawn a case he filed against the government for blocking his shows 5 years ago, he says that the Uganda Human Rights Commission is biased.

Appearing with his lawyers, Bobi Wine withdrew the case citing that Ms. Mariam Wangadya is biased, and lacks impartiality, and independence to hear his case.

He explained that he filed the case more than five years ago (17th of December 2018) and has not been given the opportunity for his case hearing.

He also later took to his social media to announce his disappointment:

"This morning we appeared before the INCOMPETENT and BIASED Uganda Human Rights Commission regarding a case we filed in 2018. Today was the first time I was being invited for a hearing. I have therefore withdrawn it for the reasons stated in this statement!"- he posted.

Bobi Wine says that the commission and security agencies blocked over 20 music concerts he was supposed to perform at, confiscated music equipment, and denied several people their rights to earn a living because of their political affiliation which he says was wrong.
